North Side: Allegheny Center

"In 1780 the area that is now Allegheny Center was subdivided and designed with a public square at its core. In this century, urban renewal brought the 1966 opening of the 75-store Allegheny Center Mall. A sixty-five million dollar project of Alcoa Properties, Inc., the overall reconstruction of Allegheny Center cleared 518 buildings for 2 professional buildings, 4 apartment buildings, totaling 840 units, and 50 townhouses in addition to the shopping mall."
